Have you ever sat in a HUGE music venue and look down on the stage from a distance that made your favorite band look like toy soldiers? Doesn’t it make you think to yourself “I wish I had seen them in a small venue before they got so big”. That’s what the Vanguard is all about. The word Vanguard means to be in front on the edge and thats what you’ll find here. Bands, DJ’s and everything in between that are at the forefront todays music scene. Artist that are on their way up and great independent artist that like playing intimate venues. This is the place you can catch the next big thing, before there so big you can’t get a seat within 200 yards. At the Vanguard every seat is great whether you’re on the floor right in front of the band or comfortably seated in the balcony where you can still see what the band looks like.
We’re located in historic Brady district in downtown Tulsa, OK. You can find us in between to other great music venues the Brady Theatre and Cain’s Ballroom.The Vanguard is not just another bar. We’re only open when we have shows because we’re just a music venue, nothing else.
